Description: Heavy use of 137 National Forest campgrounds and picnic areas surveyed in California has resulted in several critical types of site deterioration. More than half were inadequately stocked; four-fifths were disturbed 1963 by trampling , erosion, and mechanical means; and two-thirds had poor accumulations of protective plant litter on soil surfaces. Ecological studies of recreation site capacity, site maintenance and site improvement are required to supplement currently improved practices of campground and picnic site management and to develop new ones.
